History of the Theatre Group

In 2000, following our highly successful Millennium Gang Show, a small group of the cast approached the Gang Show committee to ask if they could set up a theatre group. The committee were delighted to support the idea and the WWGS Theatre Group was launched in September 2000. The Group is open to active members of the Guide and Scout Associations between the ages of 10 and 25 within the catchment area of West Wirral Gang Show and, although most of the current membership are also cast members of the Gang Show you do not need to have been in the Gang Show to join. Indeed, several talented members of subsequent Gang Shows joined via the Theatre Group rather than vice versa.

As far as we know, this is the only Theatre Group attached to a Gang Show in the UK, making our Theatre Group quite unique. The Group is run by it's younger members, with support from a small group of adults who have a wealth of experience in theatre. The group runs in alternative years to the Gang Show offering some continuity to cast members who want to keep on performing.

In the past the Theatre group has produced some excellent shows including "Return to the Forbidden Planet", an "Expression of Youth", "Cinderella" in 2007, "Snow White" in 2009 and in 2011 the spectacular “Treasure Island”. The last three productions were entirely written, produced and performed by the Theatre Group, and were completely sold out for all of the performances.

Although our Theatre Group is currently not meeting, we would welcome any interest from adults who might like to take up running the theatre group in the future. If you're interested please get in touch!
